Shift to use of UK extension IDs for all VMP concepts in both dm+d and SNOMED CT UK Drug Extension

Published: March 2023

Dear colleague,

Following the sample batch of VMP ID changes that went live on 27th February, a further 6 VMP ID changes are going to be made in Sample batch 2. These changes will go live in TRUD on Monday 20th March. Sample batch 2 has been created to allow for further impact assessment to be made before we progress with the Batches of changes from May onwards.

The bulk of the changes will then proceed from May 2023 onwards. The roll out plan and list of concepts effected by these changes are available here.

Further information about the above changes and the others planned for later in 2023 is available at the UK Medicines Terminology Futures pages. 

If you have any queries relating to any of the changes, please contact the delivery team at nhsdigital.ukmeds@nhs.net  

Kind regards
